Philip Daval-Bowden
Managing Partner


We work closely with some of the leading firms of solicitors in the country, including Magic Circle and large City firms as well as boutique specialist firms, in the quantification, recovery and opposition of legal costs. In addition to acting on behalf of law firms we also work directly with other organisations with an interest in the costs of legal services such as insurers, banks and accountancy firms.

We offer a highly professional and dedicated service tailored to your requirements to ensure we act as an extension of your litigation department or relevant team. Our aim is to work together with you, as trusted advisors, to deliver results quickly, effectively and commercially.

We are committed to tailoring costs solutions for every eventuality and offer a professional bespoke service. We provide comprehensive services that meet all of our clients’ costs requirements. We provide a wide range of services from valued and trusted legal costs advice to costs budgeting and management; and from the preparation of Bills of Costs or detailed Points of Dispute to the conduct of major ground breaking costs litigation where important principles are established, as well as all costs consultancy services.

We have acted in some of the largest and most complex costs litigation that has taken place in the UK over the past decades.
